VICTORIA, A NEW CHIEF JUSTICE. Melbourxe, Monday. Dr. Madden was sworn in as Chief Justice of Victoria. The appointment is very popular with the comrnimity. Melbourne, Tuesday. Judge Williams has written to the Press bitterly criticising the appointment of Dr. Madden to the Chief Justiceship. His Honor sv-ys the appointment is an insult to the JBench, and that if he were five years younger, he would resign his judgeship. The public think that His Honor's letter indicates his own unsuitability for the position.

GBEENBU8EE8 NEWS. [Feom Our Cokuespoxdext]. G-reexbushes, Friday. The weather is all that can be de sired since the new year entered ; but for a little time before that it was almost unbearable, not only that ihe sun was very hot, but it. was sul try and.oppressive. Several new arrivals have come on to the field lately. I suppose — and hope — that they intend to do some prospecting. A good number of the tinfielders have returned from their holidays. The mail was heavily loaded with passengers last evening (Thursday). I heard to-day of a serious gun ac cident at Jayes, where a native acci dentally shot himself, wounding him self seriously, though not fatally. Mr. Moulton passed early }resterday morn ing with the injured man in a four wheeler, on his way to Bunbury for medical assistance. This is one more proof added, I might say, to the niany proofs gone before it of the necessity for having a doctor residing at Bridge town. The suffering of -this poor, unfortunate native, who by the...

CHATTERINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 11 January 1893
CHATTERINGS. ? v ? . (By CniarpAjrzEE.) The latest phase of competition1 — ' Goods cheaper than the cheapest.' Business enterprise discounts the com ing prosperity with invitations ' to come and get credit.' Vicissitudes of fickle fortune — from the ..'.bottom of the poll to the top.' . It is encouraging to note that the very satisfactory results of the Government schools examinations have extinguished the aspirations of the advocates of higher education. Numerous tales of woe are in evidence on. the subject of the re-valuations of town properties, and higher rating and higher education, appear equally ob noxious. The expansion of trades and professons affords ample scope for the ingenuity of a universal provider. If the demand for building sites on the Prosser Estate continues, South Bun bury is likely to put the town proper in the shade. Something like confidence in our racing community. A gentleman has offered to subscribe £50 towards a day's racing, but the committee are so reli...

THE MUTUAL IMPBO VEMENT SOCIETY'S CONCERT.
